I started off this blog writing about Alison Mosshart (the Kills) for her tough girl style. Jamie Hince (Her bandmate) is the neater half of the group. He seems to favor a sweater layered over a button up but carries it in a way that is far from faux preppy. When he's on stage your attention is divided between Alison and his guitar.
They're first two releases "Black Rooster EP" and "Keep On Your Mean Side" are riddled with a raw bluesy sound. "No Wow", they're third release, is more streamlined and artistically incorporates they're signature growl. Alison carries that heavy rocker element of the first two records while Jamie's style favors the streamline appeal of "No Wow."
Style-wise he manages to add a rock n' roll boy element but remains a guitarist you could bring home to mom. But sorry girls, he currently belongs to model Valentine Fillol-Cordier. Sometimes a pair of shredded black jeans or a motorcycle jacket will make an appearance but most of the time he looks ready to teach a beatnik english class. That's something I'd like to see in a guy more often.
Hours after I wrote this I found out that Jamie is now tied to Miss Moss herself. She must dig his cleaned up rocker look. Don't get too distracted Jamie, I want a new record!
